Coeliac disease is a genetically-determined chronic inflammatory intestinal disease induced by an environmental precipitant, gluten. Patients with the disease might have mainly non-gastrointestinal symptoms, and as a result patients present to various medical practitioners. Epidemiological studies have shown that coeliac disease is very common and affects about one in 250 people. The disease is associated with an increased rate of osteoporosis, infertility, autoimmune diseases, and malignant… Expand

Celiac Disease: Complications and the role of Infection in Pathogenesis
CD is modestly associated with future venous thromboembolism (VTE), end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in individuals with CD, and the pathogenesis of CD is further investigated by assessing the effect of infectious disease at time of gluten introduction in infants on the risk of future CD.

Management of celiac disease in daily clinical practice.
Although CD is a well-characterized disease, it is grossly underdiagnosed, despite the severe consequences of long-term gluten ingestion in CD, such as enhanced autoimmunity, refractory CD and intestinal T cell lymphoma. Expand
